    This whole group is filled with people who crown the barton 2500+ as king
    of it's generation, too much credit I think,..
    Have a barton 2600+ variant on an Asus X7N8X-X (budget board) with a
    volcano 11 (plane in distess)
    I have it rocksolid stable at 264 FSB * 10 :-/
    (Timings:,5 slot0,2 512MB, 256MB Adata DDR400Mhz)
    I ran Prime95's torture test (-D and unreal tour. 2003's botmatch-all.bat
    around 32 hours,.. at the same time :) Anyway, A little more respect for
    this 2600 king would be appropriate!!

    Is this the new Barton 2600+ with 512kb L2 cache?

    If so, I am not sure it is the same generation - which was 2500+; 2800+,
    3000+ and 3200+ - of which the 2500+ was certainly king.

    Still an impressive overclock - 2640 mhz on air, be interesting to see how
    these new Bartons behave as a group or whether yours is an exception - what
    is your vcore and temps just out of curiosity - and also what is the
    stepping of the cpu?

    So maybe the king is dead - if so, long live the king

    - technology moves on so fast - no sooner than you get your brand new kit
    out of its box - it seems there is always something better just released.

    Memory timings: Is this 2.5 or 2.0 CAS memory? Also, the '3', there
    are recent forum posts that argue a high value like 8-12 is faster. Run
    memtest3 for several settings and look at your MB/S rating. I noticed a
    1699->1766 jump in going from 8 to 12, using 230fsb and 2.0 ram.

    ah - you were fibbing

    - got me with the old double bluff - thought no one would make up such an
    incredible fsb - and maybe that it was typing errors or some brand new kit.

    - I really should get a life too
